Tales Of Herding Gods | Chapter 1285 - Not Helping Is Helping
Qin Mu's heart stirred when he heard that. He flew down from the 28 heavens of the Glassy Sky Pagoda. As he fell diagonally, the eye in the heart of his brows opened up.
The Tai Shi Origin Stone in the vertical eye was activated. At the same time, countless runes lit up on the Tai Shi Egg and shone on the Tai Shi Divine Stone with a hum as it spun.
The pupil in the heart of his brows immediately turned black and white, spinning furiously.
A black and white light intertwined, and a pillar of light descended from the sky, shining diagonally at the throat of the skinny figure.
When this beam of light shone down, the skinny figure's throat was immediately petrified. The beam of light moved, and wherever it passed, his body was actually rapidly petrified!
Qin Mu flew over diagonally, and when his feet touched the ground, the eye in the heart of his brows had already shone on him from head to toe!
The skinny figure was transformed into a stone statue and didn't move.
Everyone in the Glassy Sky Pagoda instantly felt relaxed. The terrifying suction force vanished, and their qi and blood stopped flowing.
Jiang Yunjian and the other experts of the younger generation fell from the sky and fell to the ground, unable to get up for a moment.
First Ancestor, Yan'er, and the rest also had lingering fears.
Qin Mu's body didn't stop moving as he circled around the stone statue. His third eye's black and white eyes intertwined and shone on every part of his body to strengthen the petrification effect.
He raised his hand, and the stone statue flew up. Qin Mu raised his head, and his vertical eye shone on the soles of the stone statue's feet.
Dong, the stone statue landed on the ground, and Qin Mu continued to roam around without missing a single corner.
"Enough, enough! Celestial Venerable Mu, you can stop now!"
Tai Shi's voice came from the egg, and he shouted, "His body is completely petrified, and even his primordial spirit is petrified. There's no need to shine anymore! Quickly think of a way to get me out!"
Qin Mu's footsteps stopped, and he let out a sigh of relief. His entire body had almost collapsed to the ground, so he simply lay on the ground and panted.
It was too dangerous just now. If the egg of Tai Shi hadn't been swallowed by the skinny figure and allowed him to absorb the qi of Tai Shi from the egg, Qin Mu and the rest wouldn't have had a chance to win.
The Dao of Tai Shi and the Dao of Taiji had solved the biggest crisis of the black wood!
"Celestial Venerable Mu, quickly save me. I think I'm stuck in his throat."
From the throat of the stone statue came the muffled voice of the Tai Shi from the egg. "This stone statue is too hard, I can't move. Celestial Venerable Mu? Celestial Venerable Mu, are you still there… You didn't abandon me and run away, did you?"
Yan'er quickly rushed over and transformed into a dragon sparrow. She stretched her claws into the mouth of the stone statue and dug out. After some time, she finally managed to dig out the egg of Tai Shi.
The Tai Shi egg landed on the ground and rolled for two rounds. Only when it realized that it was fine did it relax. "That was close, that was close! It's a pity that I lost a portion of my Tai Shi qi. Celestial Venerable Mu, you have to compensate me!"
Qin Mu laid there and continued to pant. This was the first time he felt so exhausted that he wanted to die.
The egg of Tai Shi stood beside him.
The sky turned white. The night was finally over.
Everyone was relieved when they saw this. They sat on the ground one by one, either lying down or leaning on each other or on the rocks. They were too tired.
The night passed in a soul-stirring manner.
Qin Mu recovered some strength and stood up shakily. After walking around the stone statue with its mouth wide open for a few weeks, he realized that the stone statue was perfectly fine. Only then was he completely at ease.
"Dao Brother Tai Yi still hasn't come…" Qin Mu was slightly disappointed.
"If you believe in him, you might as well believe in Taiji, that fellow who doesn't know what he's talking about."
Tai Shi said, "He must be shivering somewhere."
Qin Mu broke into laughter and shook his head. Apothecary was busy treating everyone's injuries, and everyone finally recovered.
That night was too dangerous. They still had lingering fears when they recalled it.
They climbed out of the valley, and when the sunlight shone on them, it was actually so bright and beautiful that it intoxicated them.
"It's good to be alive," Mute sighed ruefully with his eyes narrowed.
Qin Mu looked into the distance and saw a few huge black mountains splitting open, giving off pure white gas. A youth carrying a bucket was rushing over.
His face turned black, and he walked forward. The youth put down the bucket and said with a smile, "Celestial Venerable Mu, good night? Now, you should know what's buried under this black tree, right?"
Qin Mu stood beside him and was silent for a moment before saying, "Dao brother said he was coming to assist."
"I only said I wanted to help, I didn't say I would do it myself."
The youth took out the willow branch from the bucket and sprinkled water on the cracked black mountain. "I'm cheering for you guys from above, and I'm also helping."
Qin Mu was speechless from anger. Just as he was about to speak, he saw the cracked black mountain slowly closing up.
"The best way to help you is not to help you repel the strong practitioners of the previous universe, but to help you realize who the enemy you are facing is. If you occupy the big black wood and become its owner, you will have to face all of this."
The youth, Tai Yi, said as he splashed water, "If you don't even realize this, how can you help me stop the invasion of these prehistoric monsters? There are extremely powerful existences among them that can even create void beasts and send them here. They are unscrupulous in order to enter this universe. If you can't even pass the small test last night, then you have no right to occupy this place."
He handed the bucket and willow branch to Qin Mu and said with a smile that was yet not a smile, "Celestial Venerable Mu, master of the hundred thousand black mountains, your mountain has split open, so repair it yourself."
Qin Mu took the bucket and willow branch and followed his example, sprinkling them into the cracks of the black mountain. There was a terrifying sight in the cracks of the black mountain. It was as if some terrifying creature was crawling out from inside, leaving behind the marks left behind by its sharp claws.
"There's another reason why I didn't show up last night."
The youth, Tai Yi, guided him on how to sprinkle the water in the bucket to repair the black mountain while continuing, "That's Dao Friend Tai Shi. Dao Friend Tai Shi has been suppressed by Tai Chu for so many years after all. His mind is no longer pure. The person he admires the most isn't me, but the Tai Chu that suppressed him."
Qin Mu listened quietly.
"He wants to become another Tai Chu, the ruler of the entire universe."
The youth Tai Yi said, "The conversation he had with Tai Su in the heart of your brows was actually about how to extricate yourself from your grasp, how to take back your mine, and how to work together to control the world in the future. They even discussed how Tai Su would become the emperor and the empress."
Qin Mu stopped and thought about it. He said with a smile, "That's how it should be. I've been guessing what he and Tai Su had discussed and have long prepared for the worst."
The youth said easily, "If I had helped you last night, would Taishi have helped you?"
Qin Mu was stunned and looked into the distance. The egg of Tai Shi was placed on a mountain by Yan'er, who liked to take care of people. The diligent dragon sparrow was searching for tree branches and leaves in all directions, planning to build a bird's nest for the egg and then squat on it to hatch it.
Qin Mu couldn't help shaking his head and laughing.
"The current Tai Shi is no longer the Tai Shi that escaped the suppression of the Tai Chu. He is slowly being influenced by you."
The youth said too easily, "This is a good thing. He has already realized that this universe has nurtured him and given him his duty. The desire and ambition in his heart are gradually fading. Look, he's very peaceful now."
Qin Mu looked over and saw that the egg of Tai Shi had slipped away secretly when Yan'er didn't see it. It was then caught by the diligent Yan'er and stuffed back into the nest.
"If I help you, Tai Shu will become another Celestial Emperor Tai Chu. When he comes into being in the future, he will be even more evil than Tai Chu!"
The youth said indifferently, "That's why I chose to help you."
